The renal truth: Caring for your kidney patient

Internal Medicine | 74 mins
Renal disorders are some of the most common conditions we encounter in practice, and as veterinary nurses, we play a vital role in the care of these patients.
This webinar will look at chronic kidney disease and acute kidney injury, discussing the causes, pathophysiology and clinical signs, and diagnostic tests commonly performed. We’ll also look at how these two types of kidney disease are treated, and our nursing considerations for CKD and AKI patients. We’ll finish with a couple of case studies – to show just how much we can do for our renal patients.
